Steve...if you could haul in one way, and only need a back haul...why not post up the "potential" move on Moparts, or other sites.  Sure you could find a back haul.

Dave is right though, with the price of fuel, motels, food, it makes no
sense to drive or haul a car across country nowadays. Not to mention
potential problems that can develop with a car that old that would be
more difficult/expensive to deal with on the road rather than at home
in your own garage.

No argument there.  However, I would welcome such an opportunity since I love to drive and I truly enjoyed making our trips across the States.  (Been to all 50, flew to one.  Also saw 5 Provinces in that time as well.)  I would love to make another trip.  Given some time to be able to do such a thing I would sincerely do it.

I had a church member on Bakersfield who did such in retirement for local auto dealerships.  For instance, he would drive an Olds to Phoenix, take a bus to Flagstaff and return in something else.  The dealers paid all his expenses and give him $500 upon is return - he had a ball and got paid for it!
Yeah, I could do that!
